Attorney Generals Office Report Says Sharyl Attkisson Lives in Fantasy Land


More Bullsh*t from Eric Holders Office

You may recall former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s videos as well well as testimony before a congressional committee about her computer being hacked and her personal and professional privacy intruded on. Well, today the Justice Department’s Inspector General released a report on their investigation: Justice Department’s IG Report Disputes Attkisson’s Computer-Intrusion Allegations.

"Many of the allegations made by former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson regarding alleged computer intrusions by the U.S. government are disputed in a report by the Justice Department’s inspector general. “The OIG’s investigation was not able to substantiate the allegations that Attkisson’s computers were subject to remote intrusion by the FBI, other government personnel, or otherwise,” reads the inspector general’s report.
In her book “Stonewalled,” Attkisson had issued a wide-ranging set of claims — that her CBS News work computers and her personal computer had been hacked, that a strange wire was found hanging from the cable TV/broadband box outside of her home and that her phone service went fuzzy. The inspector general’s report found that the cable in question was a “common” cable used by Attkisson’s broadband provider. Here’s how the report sums up the situation:
Lastly, Attkisson reported to the OIG that a “suspicious” cable was attached to her Internet Service Provider’s connection box installed on her house. She opined to the OIG that perhaps this cable was being used to “tap” her house. Further investigation by the OIG revealed that the cable was a common cable used by the provider and could not be used to monitor or otherwise affect the phone or internet service at her residence....

And in response to Attkisson’s videotape of an alleged hacker deleting content from her computer screen, the report says that the activity was caused by “the back space key being stuck.”

Now my question is, how could they be so confident the back space key was stuck if they weren't watching?

More Groups Demand Sacred Status for Their Prophets, Idols and Mascots

by Grunt of Monte Cristo

MFNS - The  Pew Research Center published poll results showing a surprising number of Americans take a anti-First Amendment stance regarding the recent Charlie Hebdo massacre in France.  Although a majority say it was acceptable for the French cartoonists to publish images of the Islamic prophet, nearly a third or all Americans, and 50% of all women, said it was “not okay.”

In the aftermath of these events, which show a shocking willingness among Americans to be buffaloed into limits on their own everyday behavior based on the demands of a pseudo-religious, mostly outlaw political system, a number of groups have come forward to demand that their own icons be treated with similar respect by all people, or possibly suffer consequences.  The following graphic illustrates six of the most prominent.


1. Ernesto “Che” Guevara: This petition was presented to President Obama by Raul Castro, who was a close friend of Che and a fellow revolutionary.  He points out, quite correctly, that Che is worshiped as a demigod in Cuba, and demands that “capitalist U.S. tee-shirt hawkers cease using Che’s sacred image on all products and send the profits to Cuba.”  He also asked that all images of Che be destroyed, reverently by burning, while sprinkling the flames with coca powder.  Obama has offered to help with this process, personally, if requested by anyone.

2. Neil deGrasse Tyson:  Ann Druyan, Carl Sagan’s final wife and the force behind the resurrected Cosmos TV series, has insisted that all images of Dr. Tyson be destroyed out of respect and recognition of the unique pinnacle of genius and heightened awareness achieved by NDT, even though he still occasionally works part-time in the Cal Tech Observatory Gift Shop to make ends meet.  Ms. Druyan is strangely okay with displays of the pagan images on Dr. Tyson’s vest, so feel free to continue using those images.

3. Cows:  That’s right; all cows.  Hindus the world over have declared that all cattle, being sacred to their religion, shall henceforth be protected from all disrespect.  That means that all cattle ranching must cease, milk ads must not use images of the sacred beasts, and leather goods will be banned.  They also point out, correctly, that theirs is an actual ancient religion, not something dreamed up by a mentally-disturbed, cradle-robbing caravan raider from the 7th-century.

4. Napoleon Bonaparte:  French Nationalists have been waiting for this moment for a long time.  They insist that the Emperor be recognized for the divine deliverer that he is, and that his images not be used to make him appear short or to confuse him with any of the other Napoleons of popular culture.

5. Michelle Obama’s Ass:  Fans of the Fabulous First Lady request that she continue to be given shameless over-exposure, all except for her large posterior.  They request that it be deleted from all photographs using Photo-Shop or Pixelmator or equivalent.

6. Denise Milani:   If you have to ask why this Sun-kissed, Aphrodite of Czech models shouldn't be given goddess status, then you must be a liberal.  Just ask Janicki.

Rachel Maddow Tests Balls In A Men's Room


Ricky Maddow, MSNBC's gender confused Starlet....Star....anchor goes all Mythbusters in this segment on the under-inflated foot-the-ball scandal, testing out the hypothesis that a New England Patriots employee may have done something nasty to the footballs in a stadium restroom.  

With the help of TRMS web producer Will Femia, Ricky tests whether it is indeed possible for one man to deflate 11 footballs by exactly 2 PSI in just 90 seconds, which is just one theory of this latest hennas crime to bubble forth from professional sports. 

We won’t spoil the results — not that Maddow  cares about them because as a Bostonian, she’s already certain the Patriots are innocent. But this is cable TV investigative time-killing at its finest.

Shockingly edited from the MSNBC video is the very end of the segment, Maddow’s handoff to Lawrence O’Donnell, in which O’Donnell said, “Now I’ve seen everything: The Rachel Maddow Show playing with balls in men’s rooms.”

“Yeah,” Maddow  replied, “You wouldn’t expect it from everything you’ve heard about this show, would you?” 

American Soldiers Liberate ISIS Sex-Slaves

The U.S and the Fight Against Islamic Militancy:

"The former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency slammed the Obama administration on Monday as 'well intentioned' but paralyzed and playing defense in its the fight against Islamic militancy.
"Recently retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn called for the U.S. to lead the charge in a sweeping, decades-long campaign against the Islamic State Group, al-Qaeda and its ilk -- a fight like the one against the former Soviet Union, against a enemy 'committed to the destruction of freedom and the American way of life.'
 "'There is no substitute, none, for American power,' the general said, to occasional cheers and ultimately a standing ovation from a crowd of special operators and intelligence officers at a Washington industry conference."

Blue States and Mental Disorders

No surprise here....liberal blue states have higher percentage of people riding social security disability for mental disorders then red states.....

CNS
One in three, or 35.2 percent, of people getting federal disability insurance benefits have been diagnosed with a mental disorder, according to the latest data from the Social Security Administration (SSA). 
The largest "diagnostic group" for disabled beneficiaries was a mental disorder. Of the 10,228,364 disabled people receiving federal disability benefits in December 2013, according to the report, 3,599,417, or 35.2 percent, were diagnosed with a mental disorder.   
Washington, D.C., the seat of the federal government, ranked in the top-ten list of states where disabled beneficiaries were diagnosed with mental problems. At the bottom of the list were Alabama (28.8% diagnosed with a mental disorder); Georgia (29.1%), South Carolina (29.7%), and Arkansas and Louisiana (30.2% each)
Disabled beneficiaries have increased 49.7 percent from a decade ago in 2003 when there were 6,830,714 beneficiaries; and the number is up 14.3 percent from the 8,945,376 beneficiaries in 2009, the year President Obama took office.

Texas Largely Responsible for the +1.2M net US Job Increase Since 2007

Despite the Obama Administrations tauting of a bunch of fly-by-night taxpayer cash grabbing solar energy company failures, much to their dismay, good jobs numbers have come because of employment created in the demon fossil fuel industry.

AIE
"The Texas Workforce Commission released state employment data today for the month of December, and job growth in the Lone Star State continues to lead, and in fact carry the nation’s improving labor market as the chart below shows." 


"The Texas Workforce Commission released state employment data today for the month of December, and job growth in the Lone Star State continues to lead, and in fact carry the nation’s improving labor market as the chart above shows. Here are some highlights of the December employment report for Texas:
Texas ended the year with the state’s largest ever year-over-year payroll gain with the eye-popping addition of 457,900 new jobs between December 2013 and December 2014. That’s more than 1,700 new payroll jobs that were added every business day last year in the Lone Star State, and 220 new jobs every business hour or almost 4 new jobs added every minute!
In just the last month of December, which marked the 51st consecutive month of employment growth, Texas added 45,700 new payroll jobs, which was more than 2,000 jobs every business day, almost 260 jobs every hour, and more than 4 new jobs every minute! The strong job growth in December brought the state’s jobless rate down to 4.6%, the lowest Texas unemployment rate since May 2008.
Bottom Line: Texas clearly deserves the title of America’s “economic miracle state.” It’s the most important energy-producing state in the US, and now produces so much crude oil that the state’s daily production of more than 3 million barrels represents more than 37% of the nation’s crude oil and would rank the Lone Star State as the world’s sixth largest oil producer as a separate country. Along with the gusher of shale oil and gas in Texas has come a gusher of more than 1.44 million new jobs since the start of the Great Recession......"   Read More  
Even with the gas and oil boom in the Dakotas has the the rest of the US yet to recovered all of the non-Texas job losses during the recession.   That's the Obama economy in a nutshell.

Latest Study Indicated Reducing Length of Unemployment Benefits Lead to Greater Levels of Employment in 2014.


by Robert Janicki

Something happened in 2014 that conservatives understood and pushed for, but liberals decried as draconian.  I'm talking about cutting off long term unemployment benefits in order to actually stimulate employment.  Long term unemployment benefits were reduced at the end of 2013.  2014 subsequently saw greater employment numbers.  Coincidence?  Not in my book or that of many conservatives.

Liberals decried such Republican action of reducing long term unemployment benefit periods as uncaring and typically characterized Republicans, and especially conservatives, as Neanderthals willing to see men, women and children starve to death as a result of cutting off long term unemployment benefits.  Of course that didn't happen.  

Conservatives have long said that long term unemployment benefits only contribute to long term unemployment, as the unemployed become much more comfortable in picking and choosing employment possibilities, knowing that they have a long term security blanket to fall back on.  

Now comes this latest study that appears to reinforce the conservative belief that cutting the length of long term unemployment benefits actually contributes to reduced unemployment, or, conversely to increasing employment, as more people move to get serious about gaining employment.

This shouldn't come as a surprise, since human nature is to go along with the path of least resistance.  It's difficult to resist unemployment benefits, when more than half the states provide unemployment benefits equal to or greater than what the private sector pays employees on average.

It's interesting to note that the red states that had better rates of employment, concurrently had lower unemployment benefits for a shorter period of time.  There is more than a correlation here.

"A new study attributes the 2014 jobs boom to the expiration of long-term unemployment benefits in late December 2013, a controversial event that Democrats and President Obama warned would hurt workers suffering in the wake of the recession.
Roughly 1.8 million additional jobs were created in 2014 because Congress allowed benefits for workers unemployed 27 weeks to expire, according to the paper published by the National Bureau of Economic Research Monday..." Read More


My take away is that people in general will be much more willing to take advantage of unemployment benefits that are closer to what they might earn when employed.  Why work when benefits are at or above what a person could earn in the local labor market?  Of course liberals will decry this latest study as some perverse conservative plan to crush the poor and destroy the middle class.  This is a given response from liberals.  Conservatives are evil, liberals are world class philanthropists (with other people's money) and really do care about people.  That thought, along with a five dollar bill, will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks. 

This latest study may not be the most definitive study to date on the negative effects of long term unemployment benefits, but conservative economists believe that subsequent studies will validate this latest finding.  Smaller studies have indicated that those dropping off long term unemployment benefits had a greater rate of reemployment than any other group of unemployed job hunters.

How to Get Obama to Risk a “Megyn Kelly Moment”

Image via The Peoples Cube

"For those unfamiliar with the phenomenon, a Megyn moment, as I have taken to calling it, is when you, a Fox guest — maybe a regular guest or even an official contributor — are pursuing a line of argument that seems perfectly congruent with the Fox worldview, only to have Kelly seize on some part of it and call it out as nonsense, maybe even turn it back on you. 
You don’t always know when, how or even if the Megyn moment will happen; Kelly’s political sensibility and choice of subjects are generally in keeping with that of the network at large. But you always have to be ready for it, no matter who you are." - Tim Graham, NewsBusters

I know there will be certain viewers who will become unglued, they’re throwing things at their television set and so on. But is the economic effect of storms like this is huge. You cancel half of the flights out of the world’s — one of the world’s busiest airports, certainly the eastern seaboard is a very busy area economically for airplane travel and so when you start having big storms and you don’t have the infrastructure to deal with it, you are costing your society a lot of money and we’re in the developed world where we can handle this stuff. So I just want to introduce the idea that the strong winds that we had in southern California, the very strong winds that will be associated with this storm in the next couple of days, these could be connected to climate change. Now proving any one storm is connected, specially cold-weather events is difficult. But I just want to present that......”

Arizona State to Teach 'problem of whiteness' Course

The Examiner
An English class now being offered at the Arizona State University gives students the opportunity to learn about the alleged “problem of whiteness” in America, Campus Reform reported Thursday. The course being offered for the Spring 2015 semester is called “Studies in American Literature/Culture: U.S. Race Theory & the Problem of Whiteness.” The course, Campus Reform said, citing Pundit Press, is being taught by Lee Bebout, a white assistant professor of English at the college.
Students enrolling in the course will read "The Possessive Investment in Whiteness," "Critical Race Theory," "Everyday Language of White Racism," "Playing in the Dark," and "The Alchemy of Race and Rights." So far, 18 students are enrolled at the college's Tempe campus, Lauren Clark said.
It's really no surprise that a public college would offer such a course. As we reported last year, a white privilege conference recommended courses and methods designed to immerse students in the subject, while at the same time indoctrinating them in Marxist ideology and brainwashing them to believe that America is an inherently evil nation. Speakers at the conference also expressed a desire to either reduce or eliminate the influence of Christianity in America.
"I've learned I'm a 'vulgar Marxist,'" said Kankakee Community College adjunct professor Stephanie Baran, "because I desire to see the entire dismantling of the system versus the other, softer, kinder, brutal Marxists." Over 2,400 teachers and students attended the conference last year and were told, among other things, that the white race was created in 1681. Another speaker encouraged attendees to consider ways to stifle free speech. Christianity was also attacked as a tool that promotes racism......Read More
And we wonder why kids are coming out of college as race-baiting fools who lack basic knowledge or life skills. American history? Not important.

Nancy Pelosi Covered Up Dems Role In Morgage Crisis



While Democrats have and will continue to deny any responsibility in the Housing bubble burst, a whistle blower has come forward and has blown the cover of their involvement.

The relaxing of mortgage regulations during the Clinton administration's footsy playing under the table with Wall Street Bankers and the dems gamble by insistence there was no problem even after the Bush administration expressed concerns to the House and Senate Banking Committees, brought the fiasco that help plunge America into the worst session in decades. Democrats in congress took on the arduous task of investigating for the American taxpayer. 

IBD
"We've long suspected the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission wasn't honest in examining events before the meltdown. But an ex-commissioner says the probe was actually a full-blown political cover-up.
In a just-released book, former FCIC member Peter Wallison says that a Democratic Congress worked with the commission's Democratic chairman to whitewash the government's central role in the mortgage debacle. The conspiracy helped protect some of the Democrats' biggest stars from scrutiny and accountability while helping justify the biggest government takeover of the financial sector since the New Deal.
Wallison's sobering, trenchantly written "Hidden in Plain Sight: What Really Caused the World's Worst Financial Crisis and Why It Could Happen Again" reveals that the Democrat-led panel buried key data proving that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and other federal agencies pushed the housing market over the subprime cliff.  
In 2009, then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appointed her California pal Phil Angelides, a long-time Democrat operative, to lead the commission. 
The fix seemed to be in, and Wallison's account of the inner workings of the 10-member body confirms it. Here's what took place during the FCIC's 18-month, $10 million probe:  READ MORE 
The media's refusal to throughly investigate, and pinning of the resulting fall of the economy on the Bush administration, allowed Rep. Barney Frank and Sen. Christopher Dodd to leave office unscathed under the cover of the still democrat controlled congress and the Obama Administration. 

Frank and Dodd should be in jail for what these two men are responsible for in the name of politics.

The Crown Jewel of Obama’s Middle East Policy Descends Into Chaos

by Grunt of  Monte Cristo
In the wake of the total surrender of the Yemeni government to Iran-allied Houthi rebels, the U.S. State Department has had only one profoundly unhelpful message: We don’t know what we’re doing, and neither do you, so refrain from speculating about it. This message was delivered to Washington reporters by seasoned State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki as the resignation of Yemeni President Abdu Rabbu Mansour Hadi (pictured) was unfolding and his home was being shelled.
As quoted by the New York Times:
“We’re not in a position — and I don’t think any of you are either — to assess what it means at this point in time.” 

Despite Jen’s terse instructions not to think about it, I’d wager there are many good conclusions that we can draw from the events in Yemen. One is the simple fact that this is a spectacular failure for the Obama White House and its policies in the Middle East. The other is the nature of the striking betrayal that happened in the final hours of the collapse. According to Sebastian Usher, BBC:
"The resignation of the Yemeni president and his government is likely to plunge an already unstable country into uncharted territory.
It comes just a day after a deal was announced between the president and the Houthi rebels that was meant to paper over the sharpest edges of the current crisis.
The rebels received the concessions they demanded. For their part, they were meant to withdraw from the presidential palace and from Mr Hadi’s own house, as well as releasing a presidential aide they abducted last week.
They have done none of this. Mr Hadi and his government say they cannot continue under such conditions. Yemen was already close to chaos – now it seems it has no president and no government..."
I’m not referring to the obvious betrayal of the Houthi rebels. Everyone knew they would not keep any agreements after they had gained the upper hand militarily. 
What I mean by betrayal is that Hadi’s government followed the recipe of appeasement that the U.S. State Department forced on them. Giving the rebels everything they wanted and then expecting them to back off was Obama’s strategy, and the Hadi government followed the script to perfection. Now they have paid for it with their utter destruction. 
My question is, who will hold the U.S. State Department accountable for this failure? The Yemeni government that they supported is now in no position to do so.

Just Another Trite Populism Stump Speech Filled with Prevarications and Obfuscations of Fact.



by Robert Janicki
On Tuesday night, President Obama defiantly gave Americans the single finger salute as he vowed to veto any legislation that diminishes Obamacare, Dodd-Frank or his unilateral amnesty action done through the stroke of a pen with an Executive Order.
Obama tried to paint an economic picture embellished with a rosy glow of unreal accomplishments from a growing economy, shrinking deficits, bustling industry, and booming energy production.  
The economy has had the slowest recession recovery in 70 years.  The American economy is still in a fragile state and has not returned to the growth rate of previous recession recovery periods.
The claim of shrinking deficits is only true in the context of Obama having run up the deficit greater than any other president before him and only now has deficit spending begun to slow down. 
Industry has grown, not because of Obama policy, but despite the crushing policies of Obama's agencies inflicting onerous and costly regulations on American industry.  
Finally, booming energy production is due to the private sector which has increased crude oil and natural gas production 67% on private and state lands compared to a measly growth rate of only 6% on federal lands.  And even that growth rate on federal lands only occurred because of private  lawsuits brought against the Obama administration in federal court forcing federal regulatory agencies to do their job of approving oil and gas leases on federal land according to federal law. 
Again, Obama perfunctorily injected several personal homilies of Americans in distress as he does in his major speeches.  The SOTU speech had the same humdrum feel of his many campaign stump speeches of the past.  President Obama did not lay out a cogent and coherent plan to bring along America into the inevitable future it will face either domestically with the economy, the area of foreign relations or national security in the face of the greatest challenge to American liberty and freedom with Islamist terrorists around the world.
Obama once again played the divide and conquer game of pitting the wealthy against the middle class and the poor, by calling for raising taxes on the wealthy to redistribute their wealth, as if the wealth of America is static and the wealthy have stolen wealth from the poor and middle class to attain their "unearned" wealth in the form of tax loopholes like capital gains compared to "earned" income of the working class.
What liberals refuse to acknowledge is that without the wealthy investing and putting their wealth "at risk" of losing value, there would be little economic growth in America.  Wealthy Americans are rewarded only when their risks are overcome by good business decisions in the private sector.  The working class does not have the same risk, since their reward is an immediate return for their labor and cannot be recalled should their employers fail to make a profit.
Raising taxes for any purpose at a time when the American economy is still in such a fragile state borders on malfeasance of Obama's leadership.  Obama's plan, like all historical liberalism, is to raise taxes, borrow more money and then to throw that money at the problem of income disparity.  Basically, Obama is seeking to reward his constituency at the expense of the producers who foot the bill for his delusions of Marxist socialist wealth redistribution.  
With Obama, it's always more "cowbell" government spending over and over again.  With a Republican Congress, I expect there will be no "cowbell" spending, the likes of which we have seen in the past six years.

Obama To Address Congress in Annual Manure Spread


Yes, it time again for Barack Obama's 6th annual presidential manure spreading festival know to American as "The State of the Union" Speech. This years addition to history is sure to be just as mind-numbing as in past years and with even more lofty unworkable ideals and Utopian dreams Barack Obama is known for.  

SOTU Bullshit Bingo enthusiast are sure to be pleased by this years event with such great catchwords as "Cuba" "Taxes" and "Free".

But we're sure to be entertained as in past years despite the droning speech, watching Joe Biden fidget around and start chuckling for no apparent reason, and John Boehner getting that pained look on his face like he's passing a kidney stone and wishing he could get up and go outside and light up a Marlboro.  Good Times, Good Times.

American Sniper Promotes Unrealistic Beauty Standards for Babies........ Retarded Snark From the Left

The Lefties continue to outdo themselves by writing retarded pieces that turn their ideology into a satirical parody of itself.  The most recent example is their collective temper tantrum over American Sniper,  truly something to behold:
"Much has been made of American Sniper, the Oscar-nominated, Clint Eastwood smash about a Navy SEAL with boy-band good looks and the cunning mind of a serial killer. But thus far obscured in the meditative pieces from media thought leaders about “the thrilling anticipation of gun play” and how it is “doing amazing business in its limited release” is the fact that it shamefully promotes unrealistic beauty standards for babies. 
The film notoriously forewent actual child actors in favor of plastic baby dolls, presumably to avoid traumatizing real babies from the terror of being in the same room as director Clint Eastwood....."
The entire “article” will leave you dumbfounded that they could be so intellectually retarded. Then again, this is Jezebel…a site without a brain, scruples or writing skills. They likely hire SJW’s off Tumblr…yes, they are that ignorant. Their vernacular is moron…nothing more.

Al Sharpton Goes After Green Bay Packers Organization

MIDDLE FINGER NEWS SERVICE

PROTEST WE MUCH.....


MFNS - Immediately following the NFC Championship game between the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks, the Rev. Al Sharpton and his National Action Network shot off an angry letter to the Packers home office.

The letter, authored by Sharpton himself and translated by his staff, accused the entire Green Bay Coaching Staff of conspiracy and underhanded tactics to gain unfair advantage in the Championship Game: 
"The almost total domination  through most of the game of the all African-American Seahawk defense squad by Green Bay's mostly Caucasian offense we find unacceptable in this day and age of professional football.  
The use of so many white players against the reigning Super Bowl Champions was a calculated move to embarrass people of color and the black community in general. We also see the blatant theft of 4 of Seattle's forward passes shows Green Bay's lack of respect of an African American quarterback....."  
Sharpton said the Green Bay organization should bring their team into line with the NFL standard of more African-American players and to assure their rightful player positions on the field, and also to assure against white privilege or an advantage over other teams. The complaint was also forwarded to the NFL Headquarters for review.

No word to whether protest marches are planned.

Since the 114th Congress was sworn in on January 6th, we have gotten a preview of things to come from President Obama and they aren't pretty.  Even before the new Congress was sworn in, Obama threatened to veto any legislation sent over from the Republican Congress that he didn't like.  This was a very telling indicator of things to come, despite Obama's follow up rhetoric that 'he was willing to work with Congress where he could.'
No Mr. President.  You have absolutely no intention of working with the Republican Congress.  In six years you have demonstrated one substantial fact.  You have no negotiating skills whatsoever.  You have repeatedly tried, and often been successful with, bludgeoning Republicans, rather than even trying to negotiate with them.  Of course with RINO's, that hasn't exactly been a real challenge for you, since they seem to surrender faster than the French or Italians.  But enough of this historical recitation of Republican weakness.  
Lest we forget Obama's early adult years, remember that he began as a community organizer.  CO's don't negotiate.  They demand.  They lay it out in terms of what you are going to do for them or else suffer the political or monetary repercussions.  CO's are very good at laying out the consequences of not acceding to their demands.  This isn't leadership, unless you're a Capo in the Mafia.  
CO's walk the legal line, which is very close to extortion.  All we have to do is look to the Al Sharpton/Jesse Jackson, Sr. community organizing business model.  The only difference between these two otherwise street thugs and the run of the mill street thugs is that they have a better plan and dress better.  And Obama is even a better dressed than these two race baiting hate mongers and with a hell of a lot more means to force compliance to his wishes.
Obama has taken the Sharpton/Jackson business model and run with it as president.  He's taken what can be best described as a cottage industry created by Sharpton/Jackson and made it a corporate model on an almost global scale, with the power of the presidency in the form of his pen and phone as he issues Executive Orders and Executive Memoranda.  By the way, Executive Memorandums do NOT go into the Congressional Record as do Executive Orders.  Hence, the public does not really know of all the orders that Obama has really issued.  
All one has to do is look to the  power Obama has exercised in retribution as he uses the IRS and the EPA as his most notable agents of mayhem, since they are the two most prominent means of coercing recalcitrant victims to see the light of Obama's political righteousness or at least roll over and play dead as RINO's are so experienced at.

I'll Attempt to Explain......

I have recently received email from two different regular reader of this blog about the apparent turn to a darker more serious tone. For this I apologize, and I will attempt in as short a way as possible to explain.

Every year I write a letter to my mother, a letter that will not be sent.  She did not live long enough to see me grow to be a woman.  It’s cathartic for me,  gives me time to reflect and ask myself "would she be proud of who I've become?" 

For those who do not know, I am a product of a wonderful Scottish born musician father many of you over 40 might recognize his voice, but not his name, and an American mother.  My father's work kept them in Europe most of the time and they chose to settled in a small quiet Belgian town for privacy. I was born in Brussels. 

My earliest memories of childhood are of picking wild flowers with my mother in the gently rolling hills above the Flanders Military Cemetery near where we lived. These grassy hills became our favorite picnic spot, and where she taught me the things a mother teaches her daughter; why the sky is blue, how to braid you hair, and in my case, why those 500 white crosses lay below us.  

She never let me forget the fact she was American, and so was I to be. She taught me the Pledge of Allegiance, and me and my friends the game of baseball.  We had watermelon and strawberry shortcake on 4th of July. 

In the summer she would take me to the open air markets to buy fresh fruit and flowers she loved to filled the house with. I also remember many times dark haired, dark eyed men in the market, men who dressed and spoke differently than my father, watching me and sometime felt them touching my hair.  One day, as a young teenager shopping with my mother, two of these dark haired men touched me inappropriately. My mother turned and slapped one of the men in the face. He began yelling words I did not understand and knocked my mother to the ground. It was while recuperating from that incident that doctors found the cancer that would eventually take her from us a little over a year later. 

What I saw in those men’s faces that hurt my mother was evil rage that I had never seen and did not understand. 

They were muslims. Immigrants from a nearby enclave. 

The events in Europe this past week have brought feeling to the surface I did not expect. The letter to my mother has made my mood somber, yet angry.  I have tried to write about other thing here to no avail. I have been consumed by anger at the memory of what was done to my mother, and the growing concern for my childhood friends and their young children.

I have seen many angry men, none like I saw that day. I was raised by my parents to be compassionate, and later by my aunt to be the proper Southern Belle I believe I've become. But when I see scenes of muslims men in the news, I recognize the same soulless evil I saw that day in the market.

I have an deep affinity for the European people that most Americans will not understand. I lived among them and was one of them as a child. I don’t expect anyone to understand. What we see happening in Europe now is no one's fault but their own, it's self inflicted. It is now up to us to make sure we don't place ourselves in evil’s way as they have. 

It hurts me deeply to see it happening, and to put it into words to my mother……

European Leaders Guilty of 'Moral Cowardice'

The Telegraph
Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) , says that European leaders have been guilty of 'moral cowardice' in failing to challenge extremists.
Most big French cities have areas which have become "no-go zones" which non-Muslims and even police cannot enter, Nigel Farage has said.
The Ukip leader said that Britain and European countries have suffered from "moral cowardice" and allowed "big ghettos" to develop. He said: "It's happening right across Europe. We have got no-go zones in most of the big French cities. We've been turning a blind eye to preachers of hate that have been coming here from the Middle East and saying things for which the rest of us would be arrested. 
 "In parts of northern England we've seen the sexual grooming of under-age girls committed by Muslim men, in the majority, and for all of these things we are seeing the law not being applied equally, we're seeing the police forces not doing their job because we've suffered from moral cowardice.
 "We have through mass immigration and through not checking the details of those people who have come to our countries, we have allowed big ghettos to develop and when it comes to confronting tough issues and that is why we're in the mess we're in, we've been led very badly."

Smells Like Another Shake-Down in the Making

Al Sharpton Calls Emergency Meeting Because
He Didn’t Like the Oscar Nominations

Victory Girls
"Al Sharpton has apparently moved on from Ferguson, New York, and any other place he’s been protesting lately, and has decided to call immediate emergency attention to the great crisis of the moment.
What is that great crisis? The Oscar nominations were announced this morning, and no black people or “people of color” were nominated for any acting awards. The Reverend Al is quite upset. Quite. Upset."


"The problem is, the Reverend Al is upset with the rich Hollywood liberals who chose these nominees. From the Oscars website:
"Nomination ballots are mailed to the Academy’s active members in late December and are due back to PricewaterhouseCoopers, an international accounting firm, in January.
Regular awards are presented for outstanding individual or collective film achievements in up to 25 categories. Members from each of the branches vote to determine the nominees in their respective categories – actors nominate actors, film editors nominate film editors, etc. However, within the Animated Feature Film and Foreign Language Film categories, nominations are selected by vote of multi-branch screening committees.
All voting members are eligible to select the Best Picture nominees....."

George Soros Funded Commie Claims Mantle of MLK

Notorious Red Exploits King Legacy

Janel Davis of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a “noted scholar, author and veteran civil rights activist", Angela Davis, will deliver the keynote address January 18 at Kennesaw State University’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance. 

This is the same notorious snaggle-toothed  60's radical Angela Davis “who supported the imprisonment of Soviet political dissidents (calling them common criminals), cheered on the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, and was awarded the International Lenin Peace Prize (formerly the International Stalin Peace Prize) by communist East Germany. 

Davis shaking hands with the former Stalinist East German dictator, Erich Honecker

Davis, former self-styled "political prisoner", tried and acquitted of suspected involvement in the abduction and murder of Judge Harold Haley in Marin County California in 1970, unrepentant Communist Party member, the US Communist Party Vice-Presidential candidate in 1980 and 1984, and now retired professor of history of consciousness and feminist studies at UC Santa Cruz.

Davis was made an honorary professor at Moscow State University. When she toured the Soviet Union she was used as a propaganda tool by the Brezhnev government. The torture, judicial executions, slave labour camps, political famines and mass murders of the Communist world weren't Davis’s concern.

From AIM
Now Davis is claiming the mantle of Dr. Martin Luther King, a man honored by Americans for his commitment to peaceful change. Many young blacks may be duped into believing that Davis is somehow in the same league as Dr. King, as a result of papers like the Atlanta Journal-Constitution sanitizing her career. The Davis speech is sponsored by the Kennesaw State African-American Student Alliance.
Martin Luther King was controversial in his day but obviously is a much more accepted figure. Things like that change. 
One thing that has changed is that we have a media which censors the truth about people like Davis who rip off the system in order to destroy it.
In addition to pocketing tens of thousands of capitalist dollars from colleges and universities, the Angela Davis group called Critical Resistance,  gets massive funding from noted leftest George Soros through his Open Society Foundation.
Critical Resistance aims to empty the prisons of the United States, since criminals are considered victims of a capitalist society.
Those who believe communism is dead might be surprised to learn that in 2012 she gave a speech calling for “combating anti-communism.” At the same time, she has adopted the cause of radical Islam, declaring “Islamophobia” to be a major threat, the communist People’s World reported. 
The phenomenon of utopia-seeking Western intellectuals and the idealization of other social systems as essentially superior, whatever their "flaws" is due to estrangement. In other words, a disparagement of the West, a subculture of alienation, an adversary culture obsessed with the defects of its own society; hence their lack of self-criticism, shame, and guilt, much the same as we see in Black culture of America today. 

From my reading of history, that's not exactly what MLK had in mind.
